Anyone deciding on Ryder's potential for the Canadiens based on his game against the Leafs or his last work with the Canadiens in 07-08 are just proving themselves to be morons.
Ryder has not changed that much in the last 4 years. He is not physical nor a leader.
Yes, he,s gonna do his job fine, no doubt. But he won't replace Cole's size and grit. Both can score the same amount of goals anyway. Cole is a better skater on top of that. Just happened he was too expensive and took forever to take off.
The best fit for the Habs is not a Ryder type of player. That's all I am saying.
